Also yeah, Nzoth isn't leaving anything, i just think it will decline from being the premiere lategame wincon to being one of the lategame wincon with better fatigue lists, razakus and jades (UI) getting better.

Wasn't Anyfin always better? I've always found it far more difficult to deal with, at least.

Wild is way more toxic than Standard right now, unfortunately. :(

https://hsreplay.net/replay/9vANv5QBhNCVFtSxizVQdH

naga is super good with ultimate infestation, since if it draws any of the giants, they are almost guaranteed to be free. therefore u are getting half a hand full of cards, 2 5/5s guaranteed, plus free 8/8(s?). this will happen twice during the game if ur lucky and it forces tf out of removal which can let the jades start jammin. you can drop black knight or mulch for another giant for sure, but maybe the 4 mana ramp would be better since you just want to ramp , draw, and drop big things anyway.

here's my last game, this is why naga needs to die lol BUT, if you drop it and a bunch of 8/8s, you really force your opponent and if they don't have removal, it's just win. ultimate infestation on mana 6, + free 8/8s = yes
https://hsreplay.net/replay/PN6jY3VFu2ra9pd6h7Lp2A

No answer to Naga is the worst. I can't deal with the 5-mana UI.

That deck needs to die before it was born.

played against a control mage. He was losing and played yogg and it casted sap on my buffed highmane, gave him an iceblock and cleared the rest of my board. wtf, the perfect answer.

next game: shaman evolves a 1 and a 2 drop. He gets wickerflame and millhouse manastorm. what did I get from my jeweled macaw? silverback patriach and pantry spider. Well, thanks rng!

people are lucky today

Good to get dust before the season ends. I need it to craft Raza as I'm close to golden Mage and I'm down to three classes to rank with.

Watched Krip get annihilated with his budget zoo deck.

Should have done a 24 hour challenge where streamers use a new account and try to get as high on the ladder as possible.

Ben takes a little more about the Naga sea witch change:

https://www.reddit.com/r/hearthstone..._18th/dmyl6ko/

one important extract:

We made the change because we think these rules are easier to understand because they're more consistent with other parts of the game, not because we wanted to buff Naga Sea Witch. We were worried about it's power level and have been watching the play/win reports in Wild. Right now it's not one of the best decks, but it could grow in winrate as players get more practice. If it does become a big problem, we'd probably nerf Naga Sea Witch, rather than reverting the rules change.

At least I have the common decency to avoid these decks, even with the cards available to me.

Who the fuck am I convincing, this shit happens every meta and people who abuse certain deck's slightly absurd power levels are never going away.

if they ever change the card, I believe it will take at least 2 months from now... I think wild is optimized much slower than standard and they still need a lot of data to just consider the nerf

N'Zoth Hunter isn't that bad right now and after the nerfs come in it's going to be even better because you won't have to worry as much about aggro. It also shits all over Raza Priest from my experience because you get on board faster and they don't have enough ways to deal with everything you play. Not to mention Deathstalker is essentially GG if you get it up reasonably early.

I'll definitely have to make the deck to at least try it.

I don't have DK rexxar, but I'll consider crafting it after checking the deck post nerfs.
